Debating What To Do About Outsourcing


Re Laura D'Andrea Tyson's "Outsourcing: Who's safe anymore?" (Economic Viewpoint, Feb. 23): If Americans are so afraid of the dangers of business outsourcing and offshore strategies, they may as well stop teaching other nations about free markets and the benefits of globalization. Tyson is upset, as are many members of Congress, that the upturn in the U.S. economy has not translated into generation of 8 million to 9 million new jobs. But the fault is not in emerging economies but in the U.S. Such job movements are due to the inexorable laws of economics. Where profit is the sole motive regulating business policies and decisions, such mobility of labor is the natural outcome. It is too late in the day to think of fresh steps to stem the tide.

Calcutta In "Why the dean bubble popped" (News: The United States, Feb. 16) you fail to mention what he really left behind besides his Internet legacy. It was Dean who galvanized hundreds of thousands of supporters both in the U.S. and abroad to get involved in politics and stand up for what they believe. It was Dean whose harsh statements on the Bush Administration and Iraq War transformed the primary and encouraged other candidates, including the two current front-runners, to speak out. Dean was the only one at the beginning of the race with a product worth listening to -- and that is why all the other candidates borrowed his messages and fearlessness and rely on them today.
